Last night (April 27), Tony Blair appeared in an ITV interview to speak about devolution and a potential Scottish Independence referendum. However, despite the serious topic being discussed, viewers were totally distracted by the former prime minister’s new mullet-style hairdo. For the TV appearance, Blair’s startling white locks were slicked back into an, umm, international playboy-esque style and, needless to say, the internet couldn’t hide their shock at his transformation. From silver fox comparisons to haircut petitions, here are the best Tony Blair mullet memes.
While UK barbers and hairdressers reopened on April 12, it seems Blair, now the chairman of his own non-profit organisation, may not have been able to book an appointment — or perhaps he’s simply chosen to embrace his grown-out locks. Either way, people had a lot to say about it.
